pours a hazy golden with a thick fluffy white head. aroma is lots of floral hops and some mild citrus. the taste is same characteristics as aroma. overall, this is a very good beer and is the first white ipa i have ever had, definitely give this a try.

Pours a pale golden color with a one inch white head. Body has a slight haze and a good amount of effervescence. Lacing and head retention are above average. Smell is of lemongrass, citrus rind, belgian yeast found in trippels. Light piney hops linger through out. Aromas are similar to a shandy. Taste is light and refreshing. A light lemon peel bitterness solidifies that this beer is an IPA. Pale straw malts lighten the flavor and at 6 percent, alcohol is slightly there. Mouthfeel is also light and well carbonated. Head dissipated halfway through unfortunately, Overall this beer is a good APA/IPA but im really puzzled as to why New Belgium chose to brew this as a Winter Seasonal. 2 below and Snow Day were some of my favorite winter seasonals and to replace them with a lighter bodied/flavored pale ale is unfortunate. Would have preferred to see this one as a summer seasonal but its still a solid beer.

Poured from 12oz bottle. still not really sure about this white ipa thing, but to each itís own I suppose, pours a pale yellowish gold with a thin white head and no lacing or head to speak of, looks like a pale lager, but I guess thatís the point, aroma has a decent amount of citrus and fruit, surprising actually how much, the flavor has a nice citrus and fruit front end with a dry finish, mouthfeeel is pretty solid, all around pretty drinkable ipa and at a nice price point as well.

12 oz bottle from Evergreen Discount. Gold and clear with a white head and lacing. The aroma is pine, citrus hops, tropical fruit and light malts, pretty dank. Similar flavor, pretty bitter and hoppy with crackers, malts and black pepper. Medium body with a dry finish. Overall, a pretty tasty IPA.

Reid (1944) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 2, 2013
12 oz single from Trader Joe in Salem. $1.35 Pours a very pale yellow ( for an IPA), large frothy white head..very pale . The aroma is reasonable enough..grassy/lemon hops and biscuity malts. Taste is very nice again lemon,grass,crackers and a bit of wheat. OK Nice enough smooth mouthfeel. OK beer but for me more of that "new style" IPL than IP

slightly cloudy yellow pour some white head. Aroma of peaches citrus pine hops. tastes the same. nice smooth mouth feel. some sharpness to acidity. light carb is good. In general a good easy drinking ipa. As it is supposedly a white ipa I was expecting coriander or some spice but didnít get any. Iím happy though to have the mosaic hops show up.

Strong citrus aroma that matches well with the white wheat beer appearance. Very hoppy beer but in a good refreshing way. Not sure how this makes a winter beer but good anyways.

Bottle. Light gold. Strong grain aroma. Sweet hoppinness that doesnít balance quite right. Not what I expected, and didnít love it.
